Big security breach definitely happening on Instagram. This is the third hacked account I’ve seen including mine. Instagram users are reporting that they’ve been attacked by a mysterious hack that posts photos of smoothies to their accounts.

From the looks of the tweets above and below, it seems the exploit is a phishing scheme, so don’t click any weird links on Instagram photos. You probably shouldn’t be doing that anyway.

Update: Instagram responded with the following:
Last night a small portion of our users experienced a spam incident where unwanted photos were posted from their accounts. Our security and spam team quickly took actions to secure the accounts involved, and the posted photos are being deleted.
